Armed forces bullying needs urgent action, says Madeleine Moon

A Welsh MP has demanded an immediate overhaul of the way bullying is dealt with by the armed forces.

Bridgend MP Madeleine Moon, a member of the House of Commons defence committee, said a new ombudsman was needed to properly investigate complaints.

In 2013, a survey of military staff found one in 10 said they had been a victim of discrimination, harassment or bullying the previous year.

The Ministry of Defence said it had zero tolerance of bullying.

Ms Moon spoke to BBC Radio Wales.
